Is PlantSnap - Identify Plants, Flowers, Trees & More safe for my kids?

With mixed user reviews, PlantSnap Pro is best used as a tool or guide, but never as a definitive source, especially when it comes to mushroom identification.

While the concept of taking and uploading a plant photo seems unbelievably easy and convenient, it’s important to note that many users find issues with the photography specs the app requires for proper identification.

In fact, PlantSnap offers a series of tutorial videos for users to learn how to properly take photos for app identification. More importantly, PlantSnap is actively adding to their database for identification so they are forthright with the app’s success rate, PlantSnap is 92% accurate when used properly.

Accuracy aside, PlantSnap Pro is an app that can make a huge difference in family outings, pushing kids to explore and learn more about the world around them.

The app may even push families, who typically enjoy indoor activities, outside now that they have an app to identify the interesting plants they’ll assuredly come across on nature hikes.

However, because of the PlantSnap Pro’s accuracy rate, it’s likely not the best resource for budding foragers. In that case, traditional identification manuals are probably the best and safest bet.

Additional benefits of the PlantSnap Pro app, according to the developers, include:

  • Reconnect with the outside world. Rediscover nature with the help of a botanist in your pocket.
  • Gamify your hikes with friends and family! PlantSnap lets you build a library of every plant, tree or flower you've snapped. See how many you can collect!
  • Get some fresh air and improve your mood! PlantSnap connects the divide between technology and nature.
  • Connecting to nature can be good for mindfulness or spirituality. Whether you’re an avid hiker on the trails or a botanist in a garden, quickly gain knowledge of the plants around you.
  • Quickly identify plants, flowers, trees and more. Have instant access to a huge Plant Database that is constantly learning and adding information on new plant species. Learn more about botany with PlantSnap, the only app that will identify plants in a snap!

Parents should know that PlantSnap requires access to a user’s camera and gallery to store photos in a designated PlantSnap album, but location information is optional. Allowing the app access to location helps with identification.

While the PlantSnap app doesn’t pose any major concerns for children, it’s important that parents understand that the app is not 100 percent accurate.

Therefore, to be cautious, children should not consume plants based upon the app’s identification.
